Free/donation based music label Juicebox Recordings Co. has announced the release of their first covers compilation, Our Favourite Songs.  Label pioneer Aaron Zorgel (also of Junior Battles fame) weighs in:

“Given that many of us spent our youth listening to punk and its associated sub-genres, we seem to be hitting an interesting stage where a lot of bands today are formed on feelings of nostalgia. More and more bands are described as “______ worship” or “throwback (genre)” or whatever. And even for bands who are trying to respectfully transcend their influences, I think it’s pretty interesting to hear them talk about their favourite bands / records. So in the spirit of giving away more free music via the Internetz, I thought it’d be cool to coax a bunch of Juicebox Recording Co. buddy bands into recording something for a cover song compilation. What we have in the end is a super fun, and telling collection of influences. And as if it wasn’t obvious / indulgent enough, the liner notes come with a blurb directly from each band, detailing why they chose to cover the song they did. It was really fun to make and pull together, and hopefully that translates. Also, let the record show that I wanted to call this compilation Pop-Punk Boner Origins but Sam wouldn’t let me.”

Notable bands include Junior Battles, The Decay, Wayfarer, The Roman Line, and Dig It Up and cover material ranges from Blink 182, to The Misfits, Brand New, and Green Day to name a few.  A full track listing and donation details can be found below, with the album available for download here.
